Coming soon to a theater near you: ‘Pocket Listing’

Hollywood's take on real estate: double crosses, murder, revenge

Real estate brokers and agents may have a hard time suspending their disbelief for a satirical thriller soon to hit theaters depicting a “disgraced Los Angeles property broker” (James Jurdi) who’s hired by a “mysterious power player” played by Rob Lowe and his “sultry wife” (Jessica Clark) to “discreetly market and sell their Malibu villa” — hence the title, “Pocket Listing.”

“Double crosses, adultery, murder, mistaken identity and revenge ensue,” IMDB.com reports. Burt Reynolds plays the head of the “powerhouse brokerage firm,” and Logan Fahey stars as “his drug-addled, villainous son,” according to Wikipedia.

Jurdi, a former soap opera star who still seems kinda fresh-faced to be playing a disgraced property broker at this stage in his career, is the writer. Shooting wrapped in January, ScreenDaily.com reports, but for some reason the movie isn’t set to come out until next year.

If the movie’s a hit, will pocket listings, and the brokers and agents who love them, ever be the same?
